I created Crystal Report named it Packing List.rpt, then I copied file, made modifications for a Commercial Invoice. When I open the Commercial Invoice tab at the top of the page next to Start Page it reads Packing  List instead of Commercial Invoice. I have verified that indeed I have the correct file open. It has someting to do with the way I copied the file. How can I change this?

Try doing a SAVE AS

Or right click and rename the actual .rpt file. Like you do when you rename any other file type.

As you can see the file names are already different. The name in the tab must come from other lcoation. Absolutely, I am editing Commercial Invoice but as you could see it displays Order Packing List in the tab. As I said I copied the Order Packing List rpt to originally create the Commercial Invoice rpt then modified. So are you suggesting to rename it again?

One thing you can try (it works in CR XI)

Click FILE --> SUMMARY INFO
Enter the title you want in the TITLE line

Did you try the SAVE AS idea?  That also changes what is in the tab.

How did you copy the file?  I tried several ways and even renamed files.  I always get the file name as the tab

Check if the title  has a value in it in the summary info
If I set that value then make a copy I get that value as the tab

I saved the file again SAVE AS saved as Commercial.rpt it still showed as Order Packing List, then I tried your suggestion of going to Summary Info, showed Order Packing List, changed to Commercial Innvoice worked like a champ. That was it.
